What is the LGBT Great Top 50 Executive Allies? 

The Top 50 Executive Allies is a Project 1000 initiative. The Top 50 aims to recognise and celebrate senior leaders in financial services and business around the world, who have used their platform, influence, and role, to ally and sponsor the LGBT+ community. The recipients will be announced in June 2023 during global Pride Month.


Why is LGBT Great driving this important initiative? 

Allies help to create and build environments where talent from all backgrounds feel supported and empowered. Our ambition is to encourage more authentic and deliberate acts of allyship and sponsorship towards LGBT+ people everywhere. The visibility of supportive leaders and organisations, who champion LGBT+ talent, has a lasting and real-world impact.  

How do leaders achieve a place in the LGBT Great Top 50 Executive Allies?  


All nominees must demonstrate excellence across the following criteria:  

  1. Evidence of significant personal and professional achievements in the last 12 months.  
  2. Evidence of deliberate and sustained actions to empower others internally and/or externally. 
  3. Evidence of clear contributions to progressing diversity, equity and inclusion internally and externally.  
  4. Evidence of clear commitments and ambitions around LGBT+ DE&I over the next 12 months. 

If short-listed, LGBT Great will request one testimonial from an LGBT+ person and a personal quote from the leader outlining why Pride and allyship have been important to them.  

  • Applications are welcome from leaders directly or may be made on their behalf. However, please note that the nomination form must be completed using the details of the person being nominated.
  • All nominations are individually reviewed and scored by the LGBT Great judging panel based on clear evidence of excellence across the four criteria. 
  • We look forward to receiving all the nominations!
